Greetings! You have just taken the first step toward self-empowerment and emotional growth.
Let me introduce myself. My name is Dr. Patrick Andretta. I bring to you over twenty years clinical experience working in hospitals, clinics, nursing homes, assisted living facilities, state psychiatric centers, corporations and private practice with people - just like you. We all, at one time or another, need the support of someone to assist us through difficult times. Life is certainly a journey that is not always easy to travel. Psychotherapy is a viable treatment method to facilitate postive change. As a Licensed Psychologist, my goal is to help you uncover your true potential and maximize your personal abilities. My theoretical approach to treatment is best described as cognitive-behavioral. In essence, this means I help to modify an individual's dysfunctional thought processes to facilitate behavioral change. Our negative thoughts can often hinder progress by effecting the way we feel about ourselves and the world around us. While we can't change difficult situations of the past, we can work together to better understand our experiences and resolve challenges in the present. Through the application of specific therapeutic approaches and techniques, we will uncover long-standing behavior patterns or negative perceptions that may be holding you back from experiencing a more fulfilling and meaningful life.
If you're looking for extra support and guidance through a challenging situation or you're just ready to move in a new direction in your life, I look forward to working with you to achieve your goals.
Please call or email me for an individual or family therapy consultation today.
